Glad that my supervisor is wanting to tackle the graffiti problem, but how can this work when so few of the vandals are actually caught? Aside from doubling or tripling police presence and having more walking patrols (good luck in this city), I have an idea for an additional tactic. Identify problem streets, then have the city sponsor planting of trees in front of the commonly tagged walls, or even planting planters with tall, climbing plants. It's a known side effect of greening neighborhoods - less graffiti and less crime. The owners would do this ideally, but the ones I have talked to that are out cleaning graffiti of their places weekly are typically lower income and/or are afraid of the liability of having something like a planter or tree that someone could trip on. If the city invests in the creation and upkeep of these, it will probably end up costing it less in the long run.
Google is paying 80$ per hour! Just work for few hours & spend more time with friends and family. Yesterday I bought a top of the range Lancia after having made $9458 this month. Its the most-financialy rewarding I've had. It sounds unbelievable but you wont forgive yourself if you don’t check it out....

$97/hr pavivdv by Google, I am making a good salary from home $5500-$7000/week , which is amazing, under a year ago I was jobless in a horrible economy. I thank God every day I was blessed with these instructions and now it's my duty to pay it forward and share it with Everyone, Here is I started,,,
Chief Hayes White is concerned about response times.
Why doesn't she see to it that the rigs leave the firehouse within 30 seconds after the alarm
is sounded, rather than the leisurely minute or more it now takes.
A wise old fire person once said, "The only way to reduce response time is to
leave the firehouse sooner."
Can you think of a better way to reduce response time by 30 seconds than to leave the firehouse 30 seconds sooner?
How about pedestrians start looking both ways before crossing the street? This is what I was taught as a child by just about every adult I knew back then.
It seems like San Franciscans have a grandiose sense of entitlement as they step into a crosswalk without breaking stride, usually with their nose buried in the iPhone. And they then have the nerve to give you "stink eye" when they think you're too close to them.

One of the more interesting things about some of the traffic calming is that it actually widens lanes. I can't find the link right now, but here's a good example:
Currently: Two 10 foot lanes
Proposed: One 12 foot lane and 8 foot of bike lane + buffer
Cars are usually 6-8 feet wide. So they fit easily in the bike lane + buffer.
Fire trucks can be up to 10 feet wide: http://www.dot.ca.gov/hq/traffops/trucks/trucksize/width.htm
This means with 2 10 foot lanes, you barely have any room to navigate, this will slow down the larger vehicles. Or if they have to pass a city bus, the driver will only have inches to spare.
But by widening the travel lane to 12 feet, this gives drivers a more clear indication about where they need to move if a fire truck is behind them. People tend to stay inside the lines.
Also, by removing a travel lane, there is half the space for cars on a road to begin with, so the drivers will tend to shift toward more arterial streets instead of filling up loacal streets. In addition, by only having one travel lane it cuts the number of cars in half, and gives them ALL a space to move to (the bike lane).
Someone posted that workers at tech companies make practically nothing of value - and it's perfectly true.
Twitter is worth $Billions, but it hasn't even turned a profit. Facebook is another shovel with a rope handle. So what's the value in the mantra "Like us on Facebook"?'
Many of these so called tech companies are just Ponzie/Pyramid schemes that are played like a casino and a bunch of investors are going to get burned when the bubble pops.
I am a firefighter who drives a fire engine/truck. In every instance where a bike lane has been put in it has aided our response time. Just look at the new Folsom Street configuration. There used to be an additional auto lane crowded with automobiles. Now there is an open lane easily vacated by bicycles which we can travel in. No lane is easily vacated by cars, it is tedious, time consuming process. This is the case all over the City. Instead of calling someone a "drama queen", maybe the first commentator should respond to some of these scenes and see the carnage first hand. It is pretty "dramatic" and warrants all the concern advocated in the above article. Bulb outs, road diets and traffic calming work. They reduce auto related emergencies and promote public safety. I would much rather see these tragedies averted than respond to them, but if responding, the aforementioned street improvements have only assisted our response time. The above commentator obviously has very little knowledge of what actually goes on out on our streets and Nicole Schneider obviously does.
@sfparkripoff As futile as it is to argue with an unhinged gadfly with tons of time on his hands, I just would like to know which "Taxpayers" (capital 'T'? Really?) you think don't know what the motives of WalkSF, SFBC, etc. are. Ummmm, the motive is to keep us from getting killed on the streets. kthxbye.
Emergency vehicles will have an easier time getting through if our streets keep improving for walkers and cyclists. Your oh-so-scientific perceptions that there is 'gridlock' in neighborhoods that never had it before has NOTHING to do with traffic calming and EVERYTHING to do with increasing population in the city and new-to-the-city vehicle owners who don't know not to drive on Market and Valencia Streets, to name a couple.
Oh and BTW when a large truck hits a vulnerable street user it IS almost invariably a 'massacre'
What can The City do about the massacres happening on our streets? Somebody took their drama queen pills this morning.
The Fire Department is NOT hindering street safety. Every time the city narrows a traffic lane or put the road "on a diet" to slow down traffic it creates delays for First responders as well as public transit. All of the "traffic calming" that is being promoted by Walk SF, The Bicycle Coalition, and Livable City has done nothing but create gridlock across neighborhoods that never had a problem before.
All of these "advocacy organizations" who derive their incomes from donations, government grants, and the SFMTA Budget need to register with the city as *lobbying organizations* so that Taxpayers know what their true motives are.
I live near the 16/Noe?Market intersection. Although they added bulb outs to the one corner in front of the new Icon condo building, drivers have not slowed down at all. I actually feel like I am in more danger because I am actually closer to the speeding cars and bikes. I don't understand why the pedestrian crosswalks are not properly striped in this intersection and why there is not a proper investment in lane markings and upgraded traffic lights.
Examinot editorial board is boring. Heck the whole of Western SOMA is now zoned for PDR and that space really does not serve that function. Compost is gaming again....what a utter joke. We have plenty of space for activity that hasn't really functioned in The City in more than 45 years. Fools. LOL
